# is_pseudographical¶

is_pseudographical(sequence)[source]

Returns True if some pseudograph can realize the sequence.

Every nonnegative integer sequence with an even sum is pseudographical (see [1]).

Parameters: sequence (list or iterable container) – A sequence of integer node degrees valid – True if the sequence is a pseudographic degree sequence and False if not. bool

Notes

The worst-case run time is O(n) where n is the length of the sequence.
